RecSelect Update
by posted 05/09/2018

Thank you to all who participated in the survey.  We had lots of positive feedback and great questions and comments.  As a Rec Chair I think am sensitive to the pros and cons of adding a program of the Rec Select nature.  There will always be a place in Indian Hill for a strong Rec program and my goal is continue to focus on and develop a fun, skills based program for all those who want to participate.  Additionally, I feel there will always be a place for strong select/club leagues and players in Cincinnati and certainly there will be many from Indian Hill that will thrive in those programs.


As the program has been discussed with Recreation Commission, the Rec Select would fall in between our existing program and below the CUP & Elite teams.  Our vision would be a select (tryouts) team from players within the Indian Hill district that would make a stronger commitment to Soccer and of a competitive playing ability.  We would have some version of a paid coach or trainer for a strong skill development program.  Practices would be held on IH fields.  There would be no winter program unless the volunteer team admin wanted to keep the team together for an indoor or futsol league.     The Rec Select program in short  - greater Cincinnati competition, limited travel, heavy focus on training and discipline, non parent coaches and a higher level of commitment both with time and financial than a rec program (but still below the club program). 


After researching, we have decided to postpone the establishment of teams.  We feel it is in our best interest to find an appropriate league and have an acceptance into such league prior to forming teams.  Establishing this program is a long way from a certain thing.    In the near future we will be reaching out to those who are willing to volunteer to form a steering committee. 


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Concussion Legislation & what it means to IHRC Soccer
by posted 05/28/2014

In various parts of the country, states are introducing laws regarding concussion and youth sports; Ohio passed its concussion bill on December 20th, 2012.  The bill defines the responsibility of players, parents, coaches, referees and league officials when a player is believed to be exhibiting the signs, symptoms or behavior of a person who may have sustained a concussion.
A concussion is a brain injury and all brain injuries are SERIOUS. A concussion may be caused by a bump, blow, jolt to the head, face, neck or elsewhere on the body with an impulsive force transmitted to the head. The injury can range from mild to severe and disrupt the way the brain normally works. Although many concussions are mild, concussions of any type are serious and can result in severe complications if not managed properly. This can include prolonged brain damage and even death.
Laws such as the one passed in Ohio, contain four main provisions, these are as follows.
  • SAY Soccer Districts and Areas are responsible and must make available to every player and their parents an informational sheet, that has been developed by their State Department of Health. This informational sheet is available to you on your player's team website from the Documents option of the team menu.  Please take the time to review it. You can also locate the informational sheet here:
  • SAY Soccer will provide an informational page on their website of recommendations for all coaches and referees advising them of their individual responsibilities. This has been communicated to IHRC coaches and referees.
  • Many states are now asking that all coaches and referees to take an online training certification before they are allowed to work with youth soccer players. IHRC has asked its coaches and referees to become certified prior to coaching this spring 2014 season.
The final part of the law involves the removal of the player and the return to play. Key points in this are as follows:
  • Coaches, referees, or officials must remove from play an athlete exhibiting the signs and symptoms of a concussionduring practice or a game.
  • The athlete cannot return to play on the same day that he she is removed after exhibiting signs of a concussion.
  • The athlete is not permitted to return to play until he/she has been assessed by a physician or licensed health care provider approved by the Youth sports organization and received written clearance.
